Dunkirk OBSERVER reporter Jo Ward has received honors from the Associated Press.

Ward, who covers Dunkirk-Fredonia for the newspaper, won second place in the enterprise reporting category for her June 2019 article regarding “Mom finds no answers in possible sexual assault.” Ward wrote about how a mom was seeking justice for her 4-year-old daughter after an alleged incident that took place with a boy, 13, who was left at a baby-sitter’s house.

The case was later referred to Chautauqua County Family Court.
